Forum: etree Subject: Re: Grateful Dead concert recordings on the Internet Archive

Thankyou to archive.org for having provided this incredible service.

I had as much fun browsing the shows (and reviews) as I do listening to those I chose to download. Considering the vast amount of work that went into this project, would it not be reasonable to consider restoring what was there, with a message at the top right of each page: "This show not available for download"?

Surely all that work belongs to the Dead community, not the corporate entities?

I for one would still enjoy browsing the shows - even if I can't get them.

All the show pages are still on the archive (if we dont have a hiccup) with all the reviews and such. this does belong to the dead community. but we did take the shows out of the search engine... this was a kludge to try to help keep searchers finding shows they can listen to.

If you can think of something else we should do, short of providing access again, please let us know.

How about setting up a simple database of dates, setlists and sources and allowing users to indicate that they are in possession of said show, facilitating person to person trades?

(The last resource has existed online in some form since early 1999.)
